This is the final re-stocking of this super popular kit as some of the beads are now discontinued. This listing is slightly modified in that the 9 Bicone Pendants in Crystal Silver Shade are no longer available and I have substituted Crystal AB. It will be very slightly different than the one shown. The Cyclamen Opal Bicone Pendants still form part of the kit.
This is a 7 Strand 'fill the gap' necklace made on a foam Kumihimo disk. You NEED to use a disk with a larger center hole to accommodate the fabulous Swarovski Helix Pendants in this piece;
The kit instructions will make a necklace approximately 18" long (pre-caps and clasp) with a 4" focal; extra beads are included in the event you want to lengthen the braid;
Caps and clasp are NOT included. I like the 8mm end caps with an extender chain and lobster claw with this piece, but the crimpable hook and eye version is provided as an option for this kit and are so easy and quick! There are also many other caps and clasp choices available on this site including the acrylic glue-in magnetic option or use something you already have;
7 different types and styles of beads, including fabulous Swarovski Helix Pendants, two colors of Swarovski Bicone Pendants, Swarovski 4mm bicones, large and small Petal beads, and MORE;
Required stringing material with pre-stiffened ends for easy bead loading - long enough to increase the braid length, if desired;
Exclusive designer seed bead mix - enough to lengthen the braid, if desired;
Instructions include information on easily adapting the back of a disk (or you can choose the 7 strand mini-disk template or template and thick mini-disk option), the braid movements, the bead layout, and tips for success.

This is the most gorgeous necklace! and it can be worn two different ways. One side has clear, large bicone crystals and the pendants are transparent amethyst crystals. The other has lavender bicone crystals and the pendants have a flash to them. AMAZING. I'm keeping this one for sure!

The finished necklace is absolutely stunning. How can you go wrong with all those yummy Swarovski crystals. The pendants add so much dimension to the project. As always, Jamie's kits are impeccable. The instructions are easy to follow. She goes that extra mile and finishes the ends of the cords to make it easier to load the beads. Would recommend this kit for anyone who wants to make a statement with a piece of jewellry.

Another beautiful kit from Jamie. Lovely focal section, great directions, and she will help if any problems. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
